Celebrate NOMS (Not Of My Species) Day 2008!!

Today I am at a picnic at Socks, Scylla and Charybdis' place with everyone from Jan's Funny Farm, Asta and Myrna the Wheelie, Charlie, Sassy, Charlotte, and Momo. I'm not in the picture because I'm up at the house helping to lay out the buffett and stealing hugs and smoochies. This wonderful photo is by Asta.

I have another NOMS friend who could not come (too far away) but she is very special! Her name is Pua and she is an anteater! She is teenytiny, quite smart and sweet even though her favorite food is vinegar. Her life with her dogs, cat and bunny is fascinating.


And I also want to acknowledge my good friend Mr. Hendrix the ManCat who was the first NOMS to visit me when I first started blogging. He is amazing and has survived a lot of stuff.

It is great fun getting know everybody! It's a beautiful day here. After we eat maybe I will mosey on down to the pond to see what everyone's doing...then take a snooze in the grass before going home. You know how hounds love to sleep in the sun!

Many thanks to Karl for creating this wonderful idea!

It's so nice to have you as a NOMS friend, River. You and Socks' mom sure hit it off. We're wondering if there is a surprise in their future? A little ball of fluff to chase Socks and his sisters, perhaps?

It's too bad we missed the photo session, but the mom is so impressed with you and us kitties helping her set up the buffet that she says we can come back any time.

We stopped over to meet your friend Pua yesterday. Not many kitties or woofies can say they have an anteater for a NOMS friend, so you're pretty special.

Hope you're having a good time at the picnic. We are.

Woof, River

Really pawsome photo. So what's with the anteater? Can you chase it? Are they good to chew on or do you have to play nice?

We had a wonderful time at Alasandra's with you yesterday. You were a big hit. And it was nice of you to stay behind to help clean up.

Our ac is out today, so we're just going to be hanging around melting.

Wow an anteater for a friend, how cool. We have two turtles as friends that we like to look at in their tank but are not so sure how when they are out! Btw the video of you guys with Chuck was great. It sounds like you really liked him!
